If you don't sell your home with Cathy & Jim Higgins, you are making a huge mistake. My home was marketed professionally. My Homes web page was Beautiful. The pictures were amazing. I almost didnt want to move! Once a contract came in Cathy explained everything. I felt so comfortable with her. I was ready to take the buyers offer when she said, counter your price one more time. I did, they accepted and I made an additional $4000 on my sale. Yea! She knows how to negotiate! A problem or two did arise during the process but she handled them like a Pro. I didnt have to do anything. Jim & Cathy are the Very Best!
We could not have been more pleased with our experience of purchasing a home with Cathy Higgins! She’s very easy to work with, knowledgeable of NWI area, always available when needed, offers sound and logic advice, and has an amazing read of her clients’ needs. We would not hesitate to recommend Cathy to family and friends.
Best way to describe Cathy & Jim is Wonderful, helpful, and they made our experience so smooth! I would highly recommend their services! They were always available and kept us so calm when problems with the buyer arose. You will be very happy if you use them for the buying or selling side. We did both!

It was a Blessing to work with Cathy & Jim! We appreciated their flexibility, creativity & thoroughness. Cathy used Dotloop for signatures which made the process simple. They are very up to date with technology. Thank you for everything. You made this complicated process seem so simple! We were so happy with your sales & service! DM

I liked the idea of a husband and wife team. The Higgins Team was very aggressive in marketing my home. They were almost always available and they delivered on every promise they made.
My home sold quickly and they made the sale go as smooth as possible. My relatives couldn't believe that was my house on the Internet because the pictures looked so good! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!   FJ

Cathy is everything you wish for in a professional realtor. She combines detailed knowledge of the market, a direct, yet personable manner of communication, a high-tech website with many tools, and a loyalty to her clients illustrated by follow-up phone calls and emails regarding updates or insights. Cathy is very friendly, easy to approach with questions, and has a genuine empathy for those going through the nail-biting process of selling and buying a house. My wife and I have used her in the selling of two houses and the acquisition of one and have never found any fault with her procedures, support, or character. I would (and do) recommend her to anyone going through selling or buying real estate; she is definitely a strong asset to the Coldwell Banker team! MG

 

Cathy and her husband Jim work very well as a team and individually. They were very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions and needs. They are truly professional yet very down to earth to put you at ease during trying times in selling your home. I would strongly recommend them to anyone who wants top of the line agents. No other choice!    GT

 

Cathy and Jim were there every step of the way. We had our share of difficulties and they were on top of it! They were very honest with us about our house and the market. They are also very professional! I would totally recommend them!  RT

We were very happy with our experience using Cathy and her husband Jim as our listing agents. They were very knowledgeable about the real estate market. They were honest with us from the beginning. Jim does a great job on the video tour and pictures for the internet. We had a lot of showings even in this bad market. They were always quick to return phone calls or answer any questions we might have. Everything was clearly explained and the closing went very smoothly.   KL

Even when Jim & Cathy were out of town, they were still on top of everything. They made buying & selling a good experience. It was truly a joy working w/ Cathy. She is always so upbeat & always has a smile on her face.   DS

 

Cathy & Jim, Thank you so very much for all your hard work & commitment to our family!  You guys went above and beyond what most realtors would ever do and we can't thank you enough!  You made us feel like family and were always there for us during our many meltdowns & freak-outs but never once did you make us feel like we were being a bother. You two are truly exceptional professionals & absolutely terrific people. We are so blessed to have met you and honored to have had you represent us in the selling of our first home! I honestly don't think we would have made it through all this if we didn't have you beside us. We knew right away from the beginning we made the right choice in realtors when we chose you and after these past 2 stressful & emotional months, it confirmed exactly that! We won't forget this!!    Thanks again, you guys are the BEST!  Love, Heather & Tony


I cannot begin to list all the positive attributes of Cathy Higgins. When I first met with her I was a bit skeptical of her optimism towards the market, region and pricing of my home. She was spot on with everything she said about the area, and type of house I had to sell. It was almost as if she were clairvoyant with regards to how long she projected it would take to sell the home, and price comparisons for similar homes within the market. Her follow up is amazing, and her responsiveness is extremely prompt. I only wish I had other properties that I could list with her, as she is one of the best in the industry that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Erich Kroll

 

There was nothing more I could ask for from Cathy Higgins! As a first time homebuyer she made my experience easy and exciting and less scary! There was never a questioned I had that was left unanswered. Cathy's availability was flexible and prompt at all times. From property searching to negotiations to the final closing, I cannot imagine working without her. Cathy will be my recommendation to anyone looking for the best in the business. Thank you, Cathy!    Sarah Levy

Jim and Cathy delivered what they promised. They said they would aggressively market my home. They did. They said that my home would look very appealing and attractive with the pictures that would be taken. The pictures of my Home were even better than they said. They said working as a Team, they each have their expertise so everything would be handled properly. It was! They told me what I needed to do to get my home sold. I spent less than $300 and my house looked amazing. It sold quickly!    Megan Tilton

 

Cathy negotiated an extra $3000 for me. I was willing to take the buyers last offer, but she said she noticed how much the buyers wanted my home. She said let’s counter one more time. Sure enough, they took my last counter! I was so excited. The commission I paid was nothing compared to what I received in Sales and Service!   S Patil

 

Jim said that Coldwell Banker makes sure their homes are as high on the search engine list as possible. Even if Coldwell Banker has to pay extra to accomplish this. They were right. Every time I searched for my home on the Internet it was always near the top. Yes, my Home sold quickly and we had a lot of showings.  T. Guiffre

 

Cathy & Jim came to my home and showed me what I needed to do to get my home sold. My other Real estate agent never said a word. They were always on top of things, thus I always knew what was going on with my sale. If there was a problem, it was handled quickly. Their experience was apparent. I don’t know how they handle what they have to handle every day. I am so glad I chose the Higgins Team.  Rose Nimkovich

 

Cathy kept me sane through this whole selling process. She was optimistic, always had a calm, happy voice. My home sold quickly, efficiently while my neighbors homes with other real estate agents are still trying to sell. I’m glad I went with Cathy.    Ashley D

 

My husband has Alzheimers disease and I had to move to Colorado to be with my son so they could help me out. Cathy & Jim were caring, wonderful and sold my home quickly. Jim even did a few maintenance things around my home before we put it on the market. I could cry as I write this. They were here every time I needed them. Thank you both so much. You helped me at a most difficult time.   Maria S

 

Hi Cathy & Jim,

Maria & I would like to thank you for your outstanding service in the selling of our home.  I was extremely pleased with our experience working with the both of you.  I would highly recommend you to anyone selling/buying a home.   Thank you kindly.   God Bless, Ryan & Maria Anglin

 

We give Cathy and Jim the highest score (all 10’s) for all the questions in this survey.  We would highly recommend them.  They are very knowledgeable of the market and always returned our phone calls.  We were very happy with the marketing of our home.   Our home was presented with excellence. Cathy and Jim came highly recommended to us and as we said, we would highly recommend them.    Barb & Rich D.

 

When we decided to sell our home, we looked for an agent with familiarity and ties to our community. For years, we followed the Higgins’ column in our neighborhood newspaper. The Higgins knew so much about our area. We also harbored concerns about leaving our home for sale from a distance. Though we moved out of state, we needn’t have worried.  At our initial meeting, the Higgins walked through the listing agreement process and how the sales process changed from our purchase in 1997. In addition, their use of technology really aided in the sales process. Though we moved prior to any showing, the photo tours really showed our home off in the best light. The lighting and staging were quite professional. Each week we received reports on showings, internet viewings and updates about any changes or issues in our home. Best of all, the Higgins brought a qualified buyer to us and soon after, a nice closing. In closing, we highly recommend their services and would recommend them to any friends or family who wish to buy or sell a home. They were true professionals with integrity.  Cheryl Griffin & Family

 

Cathy was terrific in helping us find and buy our first home. She helped make it a good experience and has great expertise. Cathy had good knowledge on the area we bought in and always made herself available to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend!  Cassity Family

 

Working with Cathy was such a great experience! She was knowledgable, honest and I felt like she was really looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor! Holly J

 

CATHY is a true professional who worked out an outstanding deal for us. She has a unique ability to tailor the buying/selling experience to suit the requirements of the customer and facilitate the deal during what is a potentially an emotional event. Highly recommend her team.   Donna W

 

Cathy was a real pleasure to work with. I live in Texas and had a home to sell in Indiana. She took the time to make sure I was notified of weekly showings and the corresponding feed back from potential buyers. She always kept me updated and was extremely responsive to my emails, text messages, and phone calls. I could not have had a better real estate professional working to sell my home!   Linda L

 

We listed and sold the family home in Lansing in about four months. There were the to-be-expected twists and turns, but through it all Cathy and Jim Higgins were the constant bright spots. Professional, confident, responsive. Bottom line, we are very happy with the way the sale went and the outreach Cathy did with the buyer, our attorney and the village. Cathy lets no moss grow under her feet - and she wouldn't let any grow under mine. We needed to sell in 2017, she was good at reading our wishes and feelings and directing the sale. We asked for no b.s. treatment and she treated us "straight up." She nudged us when we got hesitant. And gave us tough answers when we needed to hear them. Cathy and Jim Higgins are a great team.   Sarah M

I can't recommend Cathy Higgins enough as a real estate agent. She was very responsive to my calls, extremely professional and her years of experience showed in her knowledge of the real estate market. What impressed me the most was her integrity, her patience and her compassion with me as her client. I had already secured a buyer for one of the homes I was selling. Cathy was honest enough to inform me that since I already had the buyer, all I needed was an attorney, not her services. This saved me thousands of dollars. Whether buying or selling a home, it can be a stressful process. Cathy was also always patient and compassionate with all the steps that a client has to go through to negotiate the process. I had a lot of improvements to make on the home I was selling in order to fulfill FHA requirements. Cathy was very patient with my getting everything completed. One of the things I came to value the most was her sense of humor. When the going got a little tough she never let the situation seem too overwhelming or grim. We laughed and continued on. I have already recommended her and will continue to do so. Carol R

 

Cathy & Jim are really nice, friendly people. They got the job done and really helped us with the home, we were looking for. When we needed them, we knew we could count on them. They really came through for us and we are so happy with the home we purchased. We are so excited and can't wait to start our new life there! We are going to love it! Brandy W

 

We highly recommend Cathy and Jim Higgins for the purchase of a new home or sale of your current home. The thought of purchasing a new home after 40 years was overwhelming to us. We contacted Cathy and Jim Higgins who guided us every step of the way from pre-approval to finding a new home all within 5 days. Every question that we had was responded to immediately. Their expertise and knowledge of the area assisted us greatly in locating the perfect home for our family needs. Thank you to Cathy and Jim for making buying a home such a great experience! Marilyn R

 

From start to finish it as a pleasure working with Cathy (and her husband Jim who also was involved). My favorite thing about working with Cathy was her communication --- upfront, quick, honest, and helpful. She was always available to answer questions or concerns and she truly went above and beyond. Being out of town and trying to sell a house can be stressful, but Cathy made the whole process very smooth. I would definitely recommend Cathy to anyone who asks without hesitation! Sara B
